134. It would be immoral for me to kill innocents, even to save my children....

lets take a break on your questions to me (we'll get back to them)

What a cheek!...I have answered all your questions ( six was it?) and you now want to defer part 2 of the only question I have asked you.
....................................................
those gunman, the ones who killed others? and you, who put the weapon on automatic that i mentioned makes if very inaccurate

AH...not being a military man I was not aware of that.
............................................................
Well once you start shooting, the innocents on the same side as the gunman will also get shot, plus those gunman

If what you say is true then I would not have pulled the trigger...To my mind it would be immoral to shoot an innocent civilian even to save the life of my child.
.............................................................
, plus those gunman, it turns out love children and would never hurt yours

I thought your hypothetical gunmen were lining up civilians and shooting them one by one...Doesn’t sound as though they love children!
................................................................
yet here you trying to mow them down

No, no...Now you have told me automatc fire is inaccurate I would not fire at all if there was a risk of killing civilians.
...................................................................
so what we see, is that are willing to kill people by a mistaken belief

I don’t understand you...I are asking me if I would fire at gunmen who are killing civilians one by one...Where is the mistaken belief in that?
......................................................................
and also kill innocents as well..

As I said above, it would be immoral and unacceptable for me to kill innocents.
...........................................................................
.. 8 gunman and you open fire, what about 50? and if you had the means to kill all 50 in your mistaken belief to save your kids, will you do that too?

No, as I said above, if by automatic fire you mean inaccurate fire then it would be immoral to open fire if there was a real risk of my killing civilians.
...........................................................................
so your turn: how many people will you kill to protect your own children....

Non, the question does not apply......See above......I would not be able to live with myself if I had killed an innocent to save my kids or my wife or myself.
...........................................................................

I conclude from your hypothesis that our morals are completely different.....You seem to have no compunction about killing civilians if it would save the lives of your family...What sort of a moral code is that?


Having cleared that up, can you see your way to answering my (non-hypothetical) question
Now?
